The thread is an essential part of a tea bag and has to be knotted tightly. That is why our high-speed double chamber tea bag packaging machine PERFECTA precisely checks every knot in a complex process which now becomes more efficient thanks to the new active thread break. While previously only removing a bag when its thread had not been knotted correctly, the machine is now able reject both bag and thread.
As a result, threads do not have to be removed manually during machine stops. This significantly reduces downtime and optimizes the production process. Even older versions of PERFECTA can easily be upgraded with the new active thread break.
